They did the special labeling to make the Taurus Judge / S&W Govenor buyers feel comfortable because they were asking exactly the same question that you are, only the other way around. As long as you're trying to use the .410 shell length (2.5 vs 3.0) appropriate for your firearm, you're good to go.
That's what I figured but wanted to make sure. Better to ask a dumb question than make a dumb mistake.
Why not just get the 3” and have more punch - especially for the coyotes and hogs?
this rifle only shoot 2 1/2", which is fine with me. Ill be using it on skunks and snakes 99% of the time but if I happen to see a hog or yote while on the cart in the bottoms Ill fire off a round at it. Im not using this to actually go out and hunt hogs or yotes.
Which lever-action .410 did you end up with?
Its the Rossi Rio Grande model stainless lever action. IVe always been very partial to lever actions and wanted stainless as Ill probably get it nasty and damp in the cart.
